For many online bookmakers, Skrill deposits do not qualify for Welcome Bonuses due to a history of bonus abuse and tight financial regulations. However, a player can make his first deposit via his bank account or his credit card and claim the bonus and make his subsequent deposits using his Skrill account.
Nowadays, Skrill offers one type of account that can be used for any kind of financial activity. Therefore, a player no longer needs to choose between a Skrill gambling / non-gambling type of account.
Skrill announced that it would change its name from Moneybookers in September 2011. The rebranding was completed in 2013.
